Do it yourself.
But not alone.

As experts in painting, we know that the end result is better when you have good support close at hand. So as well as making great painting tools, we look to help DIYers with practical tips and guides to make it easier; easier to choose the right tool in the shop and easier to succeed with sanding, plastering, painting and wallpapering.
